MANILA, Philippines -- Stephen Curry put on a wonderful shooting display, draining 11 three-pointers en route to 54 points in a career night for the young guard.

Curry made 18 of 28 shots, including 11 of 13 from three-point range, grabbed six boards and dished out seven assists in setting the record for most treys by a Golden State player.
His splendid night was spoiled by combined efforts from Carmelo Anthony and JR Smith, who teamed up for 61 points, six rebounds, nine assists and eight triples.
Defensive ace Tyson Chandler also made his mark, grabbing a career-best 28 rebounds that went with his 16 points as the Knicks improved to 34-20.
